In Alaska, fishing is a way of life. Our boats aim to deliver the best charter available. To accomplish this goal we have invested in custom built fishing boats equipped with the best tackle available. Our many years of experience fishing in the area will allow us to take your group directly to great fishing. Easy to use equipment and patient instruction gets even the most novice person catching fish. Getting fish back home with you is surprisingly simple, with several external options including direct shipping services right in the harbor.
Fishing smart sets our trips apart, with the ability to maximize what the day has to offer. Halibut fishing is tidally influenced, meaning that some days the tide makes a huge difference in how the fish are biting. Most charter boats are stuck with a boat load of people demanding fish no matter what, which requires them to do their best for all but not necessarily whats best for you. We have tackle and equipment to fish a variety of ways for a greater variety of fish. Instead of waiting all day for the bite, we seek out the bite fishing productively and making best use of time out there.
Resurrection Bay and the Kenai Fjords National Park offer world class sight-seeing and wildlife viewing opportunities. One tip that whale-watching trips won't advertise that fishing boats generally have better whale-watching. This is due to the summers in Alaska being a feeding frenzy, where fish, whales, birds, and other mammals compete for the bonanza of baitfish. Therefore being on a boat that specializes in both offers the best opportunity to have truly memorable sightings. Most fishing boats include seeing wildlife as one of the perks, lack the expertise to give your group the unforgettable experience. Seward Charters aims to deliver a genuinely passionate experience, having a personal naturalist captain eager to make it special for all aboard.
This trip is well suited for returning sight-seers to Seward, who may have gone out on one of the "big boats" before. The ability to decide how your day is spent only makes the day that much more enjoyable. We have groups that want to spend extra time at the glaciers, want to explore Northwestern Fjord further west than most boats go, spend the day birding in Chiswell Islands to finally checkoff a Thick-billed Murre or Auklets. Sight-seeing boats no matter how flexible they seem are still on a schedule. With only your group on the boat, we have the freedom to be on your schedule.
